How does Licener work?

Licener works in a single treatment in just 10 minutes.

The active ingredient in Licener is the natural Neem-extract, originating from the Neem tree. When applied according to the directions the extract covers, immobilises and suffocates lice causing them to die. It also penetrates tiny openings at the top of the eggs called aeropyles (breathing holes) blocking the oxygen flow which causes the carbon dioxide to build up and the nits suffocate and die. The Neem extract also breaks down the protective shell of the (eggs) nits. In this way Licener kills both the lice and nits in a single treatment.

How do you use Licener?

It's easy

STEP 1: Apply Licener shampoo to dry hair.

Use sufficient shampoo to cover all of the hair. Depending on the length of hair one entire bottle of Licener may be required per person. Massage Licener shampoo well into the hair and cover all hair from the scalp to the tips and then leave it in the hair for 10 minutes. If a number of family members have head lice you should try to treat them all on the same day with Licener in order to prevent new infestations.

STEP 2: Rinse out the Licener shampoo.

Rinse the shampoo from the hair thoroughly using lukewarm water. Avoid getting shampoo in the eyes, as like all other shampoo this can lead to irritation of the eyes. It is not necessary to wash the hair with a normal shampoo after treatment with Licener.

What are head lice?

Head lice are bloodsucking insects without wings. They are parasites that feed on human blood.

Head lice and nits prefer warm and dark places on the scalp. Therefore, they are often found behind the ears, along the hairline and the neck. The colour of the lice can vary from sandy-coloured to nearly black. After they have fed on blood they become dark red. The life cycle has three stages: eggs, nymphs and adults.

Female louse attach their eggs to the hair with a kind of glue, no more than 1 mm from the scalp. The eggs take 7 to 10 days to hatch. The development from nymph to lice takes approximately 7 days. The adult female lice can then lay up to 8 eggs per day.
